Dandelion tea benefits for skin health and beauty

If you struggle with skin issues, such as acne, psoriasis, or inflamed or dry skin, dandelion tea - as a beverage and when used topically, too - may provide soothing relief.

One of the ways dandelion tea can encourage good skin health is by cleansing and supporting the liver. One of the liver's important tasks is to remove toxins from our bodies and, if the liver isn't working quite as it should, increased toxins in the body may lead to increased blemishes. So, sipping some dandelion tea to detoxify and stimulate your liver may provide the additional benefit of clearing your complexion.

This amazing herbal tea is brimming with antioxidants, too, and one of the many ways antioxidants are so very good for us is by keeping our skin looking and feeling smoother, firmer, and younger. The high levels of vitamins and minerals in dandelion tea also encourage a clear, healthy complexion.

Dandelion tea's anti-inflammatory properties can bring relief to inflamed, irritated, dry, or itchy skin, whether you enjoy this hydrating tea as a hot or cold beverage, or use it topically in a soothing tea compress, added to your bath, or as a natural facial toner. (You'll find a lovely Dandelion Facial Serum recipe here.)

More benefits of dandelion tea for skin... Research has found that this powerful herb protects our skin from damage caused by UVB rays, too.

And, of course, one of the most important ways we can encourage healthy, beautiful skin is by keeping our bodies well hydrated. Tea - including caffeine-free, nourishing herbal teas, like dandelion leaf tea - is just as effective as water at keeping the body hydrated, and you'll enjoy all of the additional tea benefits for health and wellness, too.

Dandelion tea for detoxifying and cleansing

If your body is feeling a bit sluggish and you're ready for a spring, fall, or just-because cleanse, dandelion tea is a stimulating and potent detoxifier! Adding dandelion tea to your routine will leave you feeling physically and mentally refreshed, energetic, and positive.

Dandelion tea's detoxification benefits may leave you with a clearer complexion and reduced cellulite, too.
